How to change the name of your Discord server
If you’re still figuring out your Discord server‘s identity, you may need time to settle on a permanent name. You can change the name of your server at any time, though you may not want to if your server has a significant amount of members. As people join more servers, they will recognize your server by its name and icon. If you change your server name and they can’t identify it as such, they may end up leaving your server inadvertently. Let’s review how to change your Discord server’s name.
